Director Gautham Vasudev Menon is in talks with Chiyaan Vikram to revive Dhruva Natchathiram.
Sources say that Gautham himself will be one of the producers while two leading names in the industry are also interested to bankroll the project.
Vikram has agreed to do it. They will start shooting for it by the end of this year or, latest, by January 2017. The rest of the cast and crew is yet to be decided and the makers are scouting for other actors, sources said.
Earlier, there was also a rumour about Jayam Ravi doing the role. However now, it has almost been confirmed that Vikram would be doing the honours.
At present, Vikram also has an yet-untitled film with Vijay Chander and Saami 2 with Hari, it is to be noted.
Dhruva Natchathiram was supposed to have Suriya in the lead role but due to various reasons the project got dropped and now, Vikram is likely to replace the Singam actor.
